Guidelines for Task MESINESP

The Task on Medical Semantic Indexing in Spanish (MESINESP) is based on the standard process followed by IBECS and LILACS to index journal abstracts in Spanish. The aim of the task is to improve the automatic indexing systems of medical documents in the scientific literature in this language, but also in clinical trial texts and patents. The task is divided into three sub-tracks: More information about the MESINESP BioASQ Task can be found here. The MESINESP BioASQ Task is co-organized by the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (Spain) in collaboration with the National Center for Scientific Research Demokritos (Greece) and the Biblioteca Nacional de Ciencias de la Salud of the Instituto de Salud Carlos III.
